Big **** while braking in 2001 dodge grand caravan

The other day, when I got in my van to leave, it didn't go anywhere when I pushed the gas in reverse. I put it in drive, same thing. Put it in neutral then drive and it finally went. Since then, when braking from above 30 mph, the van does a ****, almost like its slipping into gear or something is tugging on the brakes. This only happens when you are going faster than 30mph to start and the closer you are to 30mph when you hit the brake, the less harsh the **** is.

I suspect you may have damaged a drive axle (CV joint assembly). If a joint is damaged, you might indeed have teh symptoms you described.
These are routinely replaced.

hi this sounds like you might have either split a wire when putting the new tank on or you have a short or an earthing fault, your best bet would be to have a look where you bolted the new tank to and see if you have any trapped wires this is also a bad thing as if it is a short and not an earthing fault, it could melt the wires and may catch fire, so disconnect the battery first before moving any wires, check also when you took the truck bed off that when you put it back you did not catch any wires anywhere, or even still make sure that when you put the fasteners back in you haven't shorted or earthed some wires in the proses of doing it...hope this helps you

Hi I have a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan that has a motor mount problem just wondering if there is one that goes on them.


Yes, the most common mount to go bad is the front one behind the radiator, you would need to look from under the front of the car to locate it, a quick test to know would be to set parking brake and have someone put it in drive hold the brake and step on the gas some as you watch the engine move, and then do the same in reverse, you will see some movement in the engine but if the engine jumps up alot thats the bad mount, by doing drive and reverse the motor moves both ways and you will see if its a front mount or rear by the way the motor moves. for example if the rear of the engine jumps up you would know its a rear mount and the same goes for if the front of the engine jumps then a front mount would be bad. Take note even with parking brake on and brake pedal pushed van can still move so dont stand in frt or anything behind it. good day.

Hi tinkerbel925

Have you tried scanning it with a scan tool? If this much is going wrong there should be a check engine light on. This will tell you what is making your van do all that crazy stuff.

How to get drum pads off a 2000 dodge caravan


The pad drums of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan can wear with use. Heat buildup in the brakes can glaze, warp or crack the drum. If that happens, replacement of the drum is the only way to fix it. In most cases, you can remove the rear drums, replace them with a new set and leave the existing shoes on the van. Take a minute and inspect the brake shoes thoroughly while you have the drums off the van.


  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the rear of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with a lug wrench. Do not take them off the wheel studs.
  2. Raise the rear of the van with a jack and support it on a set of jack stands. Place the stands under the rear suspension, making sure they are secure. Remove the lug nuts from the wheel studs and pull off the rear wheels.
  3. Check the rear drum where the wheel studs come through for retaining clips. These are used during the manufacturing process; and if they are still on your van, they need to be removed. Pry the clip off the wheel stud with a flat head screwdriver and discard them. Most vehicles will have two clips on each brake drum.
  4. Grasp the brake drum on the outer edges and pull it straight off the wheel studs and brake pads. Discard the old drum and slide the new drum into place, aligning the holes in the drum with the wheel studs. Push the drum in until it seats completely. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the van.
  5. Position the wheel back on the wheel studs and install the lug nuts by hand. Raise the back of the van with a jack and remove the jack stands from under the suspension. Lower the van to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

How do I access the tail light bulb to change it on a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan??


Open hatch. Remove the 2 push bolts with trim tool or small screwdriver. Rotate the taillight housing to the outside of van. Don't brake tab off of housing. Squeeze connector to remove blub. There is a fuse for each taillight also, under the hood.

The rear wheels have been braked.


Why are they locked up, did someone push emergency brake, or has van been sitting for along time, or maybe a few days after a rain? Tried pulling ahead first?

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code


Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.
